Description Carol Bouchard 2020-03-16 18:51:30 UTC
Description of problem:
While evaluating and running local watchdog tests, I see it wants to upload the file /var/log/messages file but I didn't see this happening in my test.  This is an important file as stderr/stdout of restraintd go to this file.  The logic for this seems to overlop with journalctl in 20_sysinfo.  Neither seems to be working.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
At this time this was noticed, I was working on tests to remove rhts from restraint installs.
1. Spawn a job using harness="restraint" and it does not include "restraint-rhts or beakerlib".
2. Objective of 1: You do not want rhts on the installed system.
3. Then force a job to expire due to local watchdog.

Actual results:

Expected results:

Closing this BZ as I've learned from recent testing, I've discovered when journalctl exists the output from this tool is presented; otherwise, it gets it from /var/log/messages (older RHEL release).
